This dynamic and life-changing conference is impacting the world, resulting in the healing and restoration of countless relationships.

Emerson and his wife Sarah live in Grand Rapids, MI and have three adult children. He is the Founder and President of Love and Respect Ministries.

Emerson has blessed Katie and I in a tremendous way. The term love and respect is a common part of Christian vernacular all of a sudden now. It’s a household term in Christian marriages. It’s impacted countless homes. Ephesians
5:33 - “Nevertheless let every one of you in particular so love his wife even as himself; and the wife see that she reverence her husband.” is the verse that the Love and Respect message is based off. I hope that listening to this interview today will bring as much value to your life like it did mine!
